DIRECTIONS

  • Put a small plate in the freezer for later use.
  • Peel and core pears. Dice them or use a food processor.
  • Mix the pears and lemon juice in a large sauce pan.
  • Add sugar and bring to boil. Lower heat and simmer for 20-30 minutes. Stir occasionally.
  • Chop chocolate and put aside.
  • Once you hit 20 minutes, take the plate out of the freezer and put a small amount of jam on it to test for gelling. Wait for a few seconds and then see if jam runs. If it does and you want a thick jam, cook for a few more minutes and repeat process.
  • Stir chocolate into jam, stir and wait for a simmer. Turn off heat.
  • Package jam in freezer dishes or can for 12 minutes.
